Genesis 1:17 in Hebrew:

.וַיִּתֵּן אֹתָם אֱלֹהִים, בִּרְקִיעַ הַשָּׁמָיִם, לְהָאִיר, עַל-הָאָרֶץ

Genesis 1:17 in English (KJV):

And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

Commentary:

The more accurate translation is, “And God set them in the expanse of the heaven to give light upon the earth.” This is an earth centric point of view, but accurate considering the audience.
